A Walk Down Sensory Lane

Last Friday's Clock Walk provided exercise for all of the senses.

What a workout -- from the gleaming white of the inside of the refurbished Union Station to the magnificent colors at the Glasshouse Studio (located at 311 Occidental Ave S);

from the sounds of trains, shoes clomping on escalators, street preachers, to the man playing the Chinese Erhu;

from the rough, weathered wood of the totem poles in Occidental Park to the the smooth bronze firefighters nearby (a memorial to Seattle's fallen firefighters);

from the smell of diesel and exhaust to the fragrance of freshly brewed coffee;

from the mingled delights of the Shanghai spring roll, garlic beef, and coconut curry chicken at the Red Lantern (newly opened at 520 S Jackson) to the most marvelous, melt-in-your-mouth macaroons (chocolate dipped, at that!) I've ever eaten at the Caffe Umbria (at 320 Occidental Ave S, across from the Glasshouse Studio).

And if that wasn't enough excitement for one day, there were also the mad dashes to get back to the car before our parking stickers expired!

All in all, a very stimulating day!
